I provide a confidential, nonjudgmental, and an accepting environment to allow you to grow and heal from any issues you are having or experienced. I believe in working together to begin to resolve these difficult areas. That includes building up rapport and trust. And because I value your time and all the work you have already put into your personal self growth, I am all about what will work for you.
Progressing towards becoming a better version of yourself that you have not met yet is success. Life comes with ups and downs and can leave you feeling hopeless, alone, and defeated. In those moments you can choose to stay there or push through. Pushing through is the beginning of working towards molding yourself into the best version of you. Improving your overall mood, building up your motivation, and completing treatment goals are just a few examples. Lets take that walk together.
While I was getting my Masters degree, a very close family member had their first mental health episode. I was already drawn to the field of psychology, but this grew my desire to help more. It influenced how I treat others and placed an understand that at any moment I can be in your shoes. I care for my clients how I would want my family members, myself, or close friends cared for.

Regular involvement with a substance or activity in a compulsive, hard to control way that often has harmful consequences. Often refers to substance use, but can include compulsive behaviors such as sex, gambling, or shopping.
Trauma is the result of experiencing a perceived, extremely distressful event. Although the stress threshold for each person differs, meaning that each person considers and experiences trauma differently, it is an event that tops one’s threshold. It exceeds one’s ability to cope or emotionally process. Symptoms may include shock, anxiety, confusion, hopelessness, feeling disconnected, mood swings, nightmares, and intrusive thoughts.

It's normal to experience anger at times, but for some, it becomes so frequent, intense, or difficult to control that it negatively affects their life. Anger management is a structured therapeutic approach toward reducing one’s anger to a point where more appropriate coping and/or conflict management skills are used. Beliefs and thoughts leading toward anger outbursts are explored while healthy coping and interpersonal skills are put into practice.

I began my counseling career in a residential treatment facility, working with individuals who experience alcohol and drug addiction. I enjoyed it so much, it led me to want to get my licensure for chemical dependency. I worked one on one with clients and also in group settings. Following that I found my passion in working in hospital settings. I started working in Intake (psychiatric ER) working with clients in crisis. I gained copious amount of experience with different diagnosis and assessments. I went on to manage an intake department as a intake director where I continued to gain a significant amount of experience with different populations. I have volunteered with a number of companies from the VA to nursing homes. I truly believe in giving back to others. I have a true passion for what I do and it shows through my work. I would be honored to work with you.
